Job Description

Operations Assistant

West End

£40,000 - £50,000 + bonus and annual employee trips abroad

Are you a true all-rounder Operations professional who wants to write their own job spec?

Our client is a boutique investment firm, with offices in Paris and New York, that is growing rapidly and they seek a proactive, highly organized Operations superstar to get involved in the following duties:

Compliance:

  • Providing support to the Compliance officer to ensure ongoing FCA compliance monitoring and producing monthly reports for senior management.
  • Assisting with the on-boarding and ongoing monitoring of clients.
  • Liaising with outsourced compliance advisers.

Finance (UK, U.S. and French Entities):

  • Aiding the Finance Manager in production of monthly management accounts.
  • Managing purchase ledger, sales ledger, and cash books.
  • Monitoring bank balances and producing cash flow reports.

Operational:

  • Working with the fund research and client reporting teams to complete investor documents, maintain electronic records, and liaise with fund administrators and strategic partners.
  • Assisting with data entry into the client reporting systems.
  • Helping with ongoing operational projects such as fund formation.

Although the ideal candidate will be numerate, this is a broader role than purely finance. Exposure to Compliance is essential and any Treasury experience is beneficial.

As this is a newly created role, you should be prepared to take on more junior tasks as well as getting involved in strategic decisions in the long term.
